Bio
Sergej Stanojkovski is a graduated filmmaker from the famous FAMU Film School in Prague. During his studies he did many short films which allowed him to develop his own cinematic style.
In 1996 he received the FAMU Pavel Juracek Film Award for his film Nevena. In July 2005 he finished his first feature film Kontakt.
Boasting an international coproduction, the film was presented at over 40 festivals worldwide, including the South East Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2006.
Intrigued by human relationships in today"s society, Sergej Stanojkovski was inspired by stories like that of Zana and Janko, in prisons and psychiatric hospitals for writing the script. "These two characters are lost in a way which is quite characteristic of our society (...) and the traces it leaves on people," says Sergej Stanojkovski on: "Cinema without borders."
Despite the painful story of these two characters, Kontakt is intended to be a film of hope. "Through these two characters, one can show that eternal need to give and receive love (...). The film ends on a hopeful note. In a way, this film can be seen as an allegory of love." What interests Sergej Stanojkovski here isn’t exactly the physical love relationship but rather the spiritual "kontakt" these two lost souls experience.
"This is a poem of two people whose emotions are those that everyone knows", added Sergei Stanojkovski. By making this film a universal fable, Sergej Stanojkovski managed to break away from the stigma that marks the Eastern Europe and the Balkans film whose main subject is often famed by war or the Soviet regime.
